Anyanwu is the sun god who makes crops and trees grow. In addition to their gods, the Igbo believe in a variety of spirits whose good will depends on treating them well.

Forests and rivers at the edge of cultivated land are said to be occupied by these spirits. Others include Aha njoku (the yam spirit) and Ikoro (the drum spirit).

To distinguish him from the minor gods he is called Chukwu—the great or the high god.

As the creator of everything, he is called Chukwu Abiama.

The Igbo believe the world is peopled by invisible and visible forces: by the living, the dead, and those yet to be born.

Although they live in scattered groups of villages, they all speak one language.

The Igbo have no common traditional story of their origins.

Historians have proposed two major theories of Igbo origins.

One claims the existence of a core area, or "nuclear Igboland." The other claims that the Igbo are descended from waves of immigrants from the north and the west who arrived in the fourteenth or fifteenth century. European contact with the Igbo began with the arrival of the Portuguese in the mid-fifteenth century.
